The present practice in engineering colleges under Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT), of providing orientation and soft skill development courses for a week during the final semester, just before the campus recruitment, is in for a change.

Amid growing concerns over the lack of English communication skills of engineering students in Kerala, engineering colleges are working on improving their communication skills from the first semester itself. This was disclosed by Dr A Ramachandran, registrar CUSAT.

“We intend to start orientation and soft skills development courses that will include effective communication in English and group discussion from the first semester. Special classes will be conducted on a regular basis till the final semester,” he said.

A recent survey conducted by an employability measurement company, Aspiring Minds, revealed that four out of 10 engineers were lacking in proper English communication skills.
